We are still working closely with this couple so their hoarding doesn’t got out of control again. Trying to help them keep organised requires storage and with this in mind they are asking for assistance with a wardrobe. Both have learning disabilities and both receive low benefits so they cannot afford a wardrobe themselves. Any help would greatly improve their lives.
Mr W is currently in receipt of Universal Credit and has very poor mental health. He has moved to a new area and used a credit card to finance his move. He is now in debt unable to afford blinds for privacy. He has no blinds or bedding and this is negatively impacting his mental health as he is being woken up very early by the light coming in through his windows and can't get a good night's sleep. We are helping him with benefit applications but any further assistance would be very welcome.
J has no family and only a small support network; he receives Personal Independence Payment due a disability, and he suffers from anxiety, which has markedly increased during this period. He is currently staying with a friend as he feels unsafe at his shared accommodation due to the other residents. He has been offered the opportunity of supported living accommodation through the Homelessness Organisation SMART Birmingham but needs to find £150 for the cost of moving him and his belongings from Bedford to Birmingham.
A's daughter (B) was born deaf. She had an operation which improved her hearing and is now learning to talk. Her English is coming on well, but she doesn't know how to speak her native language, Arabic. B will start Arabic classes soon but she cant take public transport alone as she is vulnerable. Her family do not have enough money to pay for a taxi because they are asylum seekers. They need £150 to cover the transport costs of 3 months of Arabic classes which would greatly impact her wellbeing
C is a single parent with two young children aged 5 and 2 years old. She has been rehoused by the City Council after living in a hostel. C is epileptic, and receives Employment Seekers Allowance benefits fortnightly of £156, with rent paid directly. She has no money/savings to equip her home, and is in need of white goods such as a good second hand washing machine etc. She has no friends or family nearby, and no church connections.
M is a carer for his wife and children. He is on benefits but finding it very hard to make ends meet and is being supported by his local foodbank. The family car is due a service and MOT but it needs work completed before it will pass its MOT. They have a small amount of money put aside for the MOT but they do not have sufficient money for the work to be done. M really needs a car to take his wife to appointments, his children to school and for job interviews. This amount would mean he could pay the bill.
Please can you help K who is a 50 year old woman with a teenage daughter. She has left an abusive marriage after 20+ years and has no financial support from her husband and is therefore dependent upon minimal benefits. She suffers from arthritis and struggles to walk into town for shopping etc. She cannot afford to pay for taxis. She has been advised that she would find it easier to cycle and therefore wants to buy a bicycle (preferably electric) or tricycle to enable her to do this more easily. She feels the exercise will also improve her mental health which has been affected by her situation.

This lady has moved into a property with social housing, she is struggling to furnish the home and the living room has no flooring. Please could the donors of Acts 435 help her to get a living room carpet before the winter months to help to keep the room warm? This lady has a learning disability and has moved nearer to her mum for support.
This young single mum has two small children under 5, one with severe autism. She is needing a laptop to help with the day to day running of her household. She is very much tied to the home. The family are in receipt of Universal Credit with only the use of her mobile in which to fulfil the Universal Credit requirements of updating her Universal Credit journal and to keep track of benefits. A laptop at home will ease the stress.
